The Westside Local
Friday & Saturday: 11 AM - 10 PM
Please note the brunch menu is only available on Sundays
Ovens weren’t working so only about half of the menu items were available. Restaurant management should have notified us of this inconvenience before we drove from Lawrence and North Kansas City.
This wasn't our first visit to Westside Local and we weren't disappointed! Food was all delicious, per usual. We were there with a group of 9 for my mom's bday and not one person was dissatisfied. Our reservation was at 2:00 and I think they closed at 3 but I really appreciated that they didn't make us feel rushed even though they were trying to get ready for dinner service.
We had reservations for our anniversary, and we were excited to try this place. Unfortunately upon arriving we found the oven was broken. We settled on a lox charcuterie that was phenomenal a spinach dip and a couple of drinks. Then went down the street for a nice a entree. Would love to return so I can try the steak frites.
The place is so cute nestled in a very interesting neighborhood. Food was delicious.
The Westside Local is our go-to for date night. Their menu changes seasonally so there are always new items to try. I highly recommend trying this place out!
Food was over cooked. I had chicken it so dry had to drink water to choke it down.
I’ve been to the Westside Local a few times now, and it’s always delicious and has a nice, cozy atmosphere.
We had a great time. The grilled cheese was amazing paired with tomato soup. Special bonus it was Halloween so we enjoyed a ton of trick or treaters!
Little gem in KC.
Always excellent food! We always enjoy The Westside Local and never turn down an opportunity to go there. They have the best burgers and BLT’s
Westside Local has my favorite grilled cheese in the city.
Westside Local is a favorite spot for a delicious lunch or dinner. We always receive fantastic service, amazing and fresh food cooked to perfection with a cozy atmosphere that is perfect for a date night or lunch with friends.
I've written reviews in the past for the West Side Local. I'll keep coming back time after time. It's definitely one of my favorite local eating establishments. It's unique, the food is delicious. I love it because they create great dishes of their own that taste great, and I like to come back to have them again. Best mac and cheese in town in my opinion!! I've had almost every selection on the menu and never had anything I didn't enjoy.
I LOVE ME SOME WEST SIDE LOCAL !!!!!
Great place. One of my favorites to take friends from out of town.
The staff was very friendly and hustled to get everyone taken care of in a reasonable amount of time.
Great ambiance. Tasty food.
We have been coming to Westside Local for a long time. I have to say last Friday’s dinner was very disappointing. The service was extremely slow; the quality of the food we ordered was “okay” at best; our server messed up our orders; even the “beer list” was limited and not good compared to past visits.
It will be a long time before we think about coming back, if at all.
Reunion, so much fun
Great drinks, great food great location loved it
First time for dinner at Westside Local and we will be back for sure. I was with five other people and we could all hear each other, really enjoyed our meals and felt very comfortable sitting and talking for a bit after dinner. I'm still thinking about my food three days later and wishing I could have more. The only odd thing was that our bill was delivered without any dessert or coffee being offered. Otherwise, a really lovely evening.
This has been my 4th time coming here. I first decided to come alone in 2016 when I was working at the Marriott. I would recommend people to come here all the time, but I hadn't been. I love this place. The food changes from time to time and the cocktails are amazing. The fact you get to put a reservation in makes it feel classier from the start. I also recommend this to a friends and family.
I've enjoyed eating at the West Side Local since the day they opened! The food has been outstanding, creative, and oh so tasty every time I go (which is often). I look forward to taking guests who've not been before, as it never fails that they leave satisfied and anxious to return with friends. Whether I have event tickets downtown, a special occasion, or just want to have a comfortable Sunday brunch I know I can depend on a good meal and the very best, friendly service. The West Side Local offers up the comfort of a neighborhood cafe and the experience of continental bistro all in one. It's not hard to see why it's necessary to make reservations well in advance. Kudos to the West Side Local !!!!!!!!
Food and drinks were great! We really liked the neighborhood. Interior was fairly quiet, which is good for people that may have diminished hearing. The art on the walls was interesting and works well with the setting.
One of our go-to spots in town! Great food and a unique dinning experience.
This is always a fun spot with outstanding food. We sat outside and it was the first cool, autumn evening.
Meh. One of our party ordered the chicken, which took an extra 30 minutes to cook (unbeknownst to us when we all ordered). We waited and waited but nobody even came to the table to explain what was going on. When we got up and went to the kitchen (where everyone was hanging out) to ask where the order was they said they were waiting for the chicken to cook. So we asked that the other orders be brought out and when they came it was obvious that the other meals had been sitting under an infrared light waiting for the chicken to cook, so they were started too soon and over-cooked. Pork was overdone. Basically a management problem. Also one of us ordered the heirloom BLT, but it was just regular tomatoes even though we were told. after specifically asking, that the heirlooms were still in season and great. So overall a big disappointment. We have eaten here before and the food has been great, but all I'll give them for that night is a Meh... A Big Meh.....
We loved Westside Local. It was a great place for an early Sunday evening meal. The four of us had widely different choices of food as well as cocktails, wine and beer, and everything was fabulous. We had great service and enjoyed the casual atmosphere.
We had never been to Westside Local before, but we will definitely go back. Everything was fabulous!
Great food and service!
The food was awesome! However, something happened with our order. We got to the restaurant when it opened at 11am. We were the third table of people to sit down. After patiently waiting and watching tables of people who came in/ordered after us get their food (and in some cases pay their bills!), we finally asked about our meals around 11:50am. The waitress treated us like we didn't know how restaurants worked by implying that this was completely normal. Luckily, management was good and recognized that something was wrong (even told my partner that something was screwed up with the ticket). We know things happen, so we were ready to be forgiving, but the waitress basically gaslighted us. My three dining companions were not charged for their coffee as compensation. I had tea, for which I was still charged. This seemed like random compensation (since I was paying for my own meal, I did not get any compensation...).
We sat at our table for at least 5 minutes before we got a glass of water and then another 8-10 before we saw a waiter / waitress. Very disappointed. We often eat here and take guests. This was not a good experience this time. Waitress checked on us once during the meal. This will not be high on my list to return to
Friendly, food was excellent and a varied menu. Nice Change of Pace. I like the Farm to Table concept.
We had good service and great food! Was a little bummed the fries weren’t gluten-free and they were out of house chips, but all our food was delicious and we’ll go back!
Nice relaxed atmosphere. Great menu and service. Loved the pork chops and that they were off the bone. Beets were amazingly fresh.
Westside Local is our go-to! Always great for weeknight dining.
Wonderful food. Great service. We all enjoyed our dinners!
Ketchup that comes with fries sometimes tastes like marinara other times like Smokey bbq sauce (last time the Smokey bbq taste was not good). Please work towards a more traditional ketchup, less Smokey taste. Veggie burger is the best I have ever tasted! Seats in the bar area are not comfortable and need the fabric replaced (fabric is torn and lacks padding). Overall food is excellent.
Great food and art together in the same place. Hip spot to hang.
Great Sunday brunch. ⛪️
Excellent service. Outstanding food. Little noisy.
Our server was EXCELLENT. She made awesome recommendations and really elevated our experience!
